Favorite Covers?

I'm talking bands/artists covering others' material, not album art. Everyone can appreciate a good cover. Everyone can also shit all over a terrible cover. List is some of my favorites, feel free to add your own, and I can add them to the list and check them out.
1Alien Ant Farm

Smooth Criminal

Obligatory. I feel bad for these guys though. They got famous off of a cover, and were never able to get over it. They're a pretty damn great band. Or were, at least.
2Streetlight Manifesto
99 Songs of Revolution: Volume I

Such Great Heights

I cannot believe how well they pull this shit off.
3Dustin Kensrue
Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood

Round Here

What an amazing cover.
4Dustin Kensrue
Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood

Wrecking Ball

I couldn't decide between the two. They're both pretty damn great.
5Reel Big Fish
Candy Coated Fury

The Promise

This is easily the best track on this album. RBF haven't been very good for quite some time, but this one surprised me.
6Dance Gavin Dance
Summertime Gladness / Pussy Vultures

That's What I Like (off Punk Goes Pop Vol. 7)

Whatever, fight me.
7Rx Bandits

Holy Wars (from "Punk Goes Metal")

I wouldn't think this would be good, but apparently the Rx Bandits can do no wrong. Embree's voice doesn't really suit the song, but they pull off the instrumentals with aplomb.
8Ninja Sex Party
Under the Covers

Wish You Were Here

The comedy band that usually sings about dinosaurs, boners, and sex pull off a rather amazing and beautiful cover of one of Pink Floyd's best songs.
9The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Devils Night Out

Detroit Rock City

Dicky's voice works so well with this awesome KISS cover. Not a big fan of KISS, But Detroit Rock City is still a great song.
10Save Ferris
It Means Everything

Come On Eileen

YEAH. Deal with it.
11Rodrigo y Gabriela
Rodrigo y Gabriela


A little different from the original, but the spirit is still there.
12Florence and the Machine

Stand By Me

I don't care if it was done for promotional bullshit for FFV, I still love it.
